Hello folks,

I'm currently trying to transcribe the intro of a Paul Weller song, it's piqued my interest in the man. I found this video and thought you might like to maybe get some inspiration from, or an introduction to, some of the music that inspires him.

I might investigate some of it wink.gif

Paul Weller is the real deal. One of my favorites.
Thanks for posting that Phil!

You're welcome Ken, I think I'm going to get all of those except for the avant-garde one, at the moment I can't handle that kind of thing, it fries my brain wacko.gif laugh.gif

That record store is in Hollywood. Truly awesome place and in this day and age, one of the few places with any real music selection left.

He's a great interview.
He answers seriously (earnestly), has no problem talking about his past/career, etc but still keeps it light.
I have to say though that sometimes I have trouble understanding him. What's his accent? Where's he from exactly?

You're very welcome Ken, I live very close to where Diamond Head came from (Stourbridge, you may have heard of Stuart Crystal Glass). They were the main inspiration for Metallica and a friend of mine's brother was their personal manager, my friend used to be a helper of roadies during the long school summer holiday, great gig for a kid eh?

Cheers Ken, glad you like this little digression from Mr Weller wink.gif

It's curious to notice that I find his accent easier to understand than some people from USA. Is him from England? Is it the home of metal? biggrin.gif

I'm from the Home Of Metal, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Country which is usually associated with Birmingham https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birmingham

My wife is from Italy and she too can generally understand an "English" accent easier than some American accents (heavy southern accent, working class New York/New Jersey, African American and Hispanic American 'street' talk, etc.)

Diamond Head's 'Shoot Out the Lights' was sort of popular here.

Here's some more tangential R&R history ...
Apparently Diamond Head's name comes from a Phil Manzanera album poster that guitarist Brian Tatler had hanging in his bedroom. Though the Manzanera record has nothing to do with the Band Diamond Head's sound at all. *Phil Manzanera is the long time guitarist in Roxy Music (one of my all time fave bands) as well as the band '801'.



I wonder if Paul Weller likes Roxy Music?
Or were the mod revival guys anti glam?

As far as I know, Tatler still teaches guitar in Stourbridge. Robert Plant works with Stourbridge college as a mentor.

Weller has admitted that he was much more narrow minded when he was younger so he may have been "anti glam" but after seeing that record shop video I think he has broadened his musical horizons enough to encompass glam if that was the case.

My mom loves Roxy Music, she also loves Motorhead and to this day at 79 years old she smiles if she hears Ace Of Spades smile.gif When I was a kid I had Ace Of Spades on cassette, I couldn't find it anywhere, I eventually found it in my Mom's portable cassette player on the front seat of her Mini. The car didn't have built in music so she used a mono cassette player, the small top loader with a pull out handle that came out from underneath the transport keys. It was about 10" long by 7" wide, you must have seen one wink.gif

I'll watch that video ASAP.

Cheers

Phil

Pretty much but we couldn't afford anything as extravagent as a Sony smile.gif A few years later I had the car from her but I had one of those big twin cassette ghetto blasters. It was crazy, I put it on the back seat, and on one of the radio frequencies it used to pick up interference from the car's ignition system, with a bit of EQ it could sound like a racing exhaust (to my ears anyway) so I used to set that up and put volume on max with windows open and cruise cool.gif I was only 17 at the time laugh.gif rolleyes.gif
